Fashion Art Toronto: FAT 2014

I had the pleasure of receiving a media pass to Fashion Art Toronto, where Fashion and Art collide. (April 22-26th) I have never attended a Fashion Art Toronto Show before, so I had no idea what to expect other then the usual runway. I went for 2 nights as my schedule didn’t allow me to squeeze in more days. In my opinion I think I choose the best days to go! Click here for the week schedule. I’m trying something different and instead of only pictures, I have some videos from the show. Let’s start from the beginning. The venue was Daniels Spectrum.

The show begins with a short film about love. Rose petals fall on…

Wearable Tech in Fashion

Wearable technology has come a long way. There was that brief time in history when some people either didn’t understand bluetooth ear pieces or just simply hated them. I reckon mostly because they thought they were being talked too, but in reality the person was talking into their ear piece. Now technology has evolved into being a part of us. Now we’ve been seeing technology hit the runways! DVF (Diane von Furstenberg) used the Google glasses to capture the DVF creative process from a different perspective, which was accomplished by having the people involved with the entire process of making the show happen, by wearing Google glasses. DVF created a short film to show her Fashion Show through the model, stylist and designers eyes via Google glass: Then there’s the new dress that changes colour depending on a woman’s mood. The Bubelle Dress is made up of two layers, the…
